“Nonviolence does not seek to defeat or

“Nonviolence does not seek to defeat or humiliate the opponent but to win friendship and understanding. …The nonviolent resister must often express his protest through noncooperation or boycotts, but he realizes that these are not ends themselves; they are merely means to awaken a sense of moral shame in the opponent. … The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community, while the aftermath of violence is tragic bitterness.” — Martin Luther King Jr.
